i have a 93 jimmy and when i am accelerating it sputters and has no power
untill the rpms get high and im going faster. It also uses alot of gas. i've
checked the cylinder compression and all are good except the front 2 drivers
side they are 5 psi too low. Could it be a bad head gasket? Or could it be a
bad injecter pumping too much gas? Does anyone have any ideas?
Thanks in advance
95% sure this is the CPI unit, I had the same thing happen. The earlier
you get it fixed, the less problems it will cause you. The raw gas gets
right in the oil as well and thins it.
~$1000 repair if a garage or GM does it. ~$500 repair if you buy the part
and do it yourself. Or, if you are really adventurous, you can replace
pieces of the CPI unit (regulator and nut kit) but this is not recommended
by GM. www.s-series.org has some tutorials in the forums.
i just took it to a garage today and he just called and said it was the
spider injector leaking fuel. he also said i was probly getting about 6 or 8
miles a gallon. he said it would be like 300 or 400 to fix

That's a good price at a shop, unless he's just repairing the unit you
have or replacing it with a reconditioned part. The unit itself is
over $200 new closer to $300 if you get it online, closer to $500
retail. Have him replace the nut kit also, that's under $80 retail
but will save you from having to replace that later and pay for most
of the labor again.
